If the Democrats Party is screwed then so is America. It means that the US lacks an effective party of Opposition to keep Trump in line.

I couldn't agree more about having opposition parties. But Trump became president because there was no opposition to the Democrat party and their MSM propaganda wing.

When Trump was elected the Republicans controlled both houses of Congress.

When Obama was elected Democrats controlled both houses of congress. Now that the democrat party is so screwed it will be a generation before they can hope to control it again.

Not for long. There are 31 congressional districts that Trump won in 2016 that after 2018 are held by democrats. People in those districts have largely come to the conclusion that their congressional representatives are nuts.

Milo.

It seems to fit into a broad pattern of federal American politics. When Obama was first elected the voters also returned Democrats majorities to both houses of Congress. Then at the first mid-term Congressional elections: while the Democrats retained their majority in the Senate they lost it to the Republicans in the House of Reps: the same thing that is happening now with the role of the two parties reversed. Coinciding with Obama's second term in office he had to cope with Republican majorities in both congressional houses - which is why during this second term federal government policy went into a sort of stalemate - leaving supporters of Obama frustrated and the hopes and expectations of the Republican side enhanced.

It seems that each new US President is elected with high hopes and over-the top optimism among the general public but with the passage of time skepticism and gradual disillusionment sets in. So the voting public responds by gradually delivering Congress into the hands of the party opposed to that of the President - presumably as an attempt to disapprovingly curb abuses of power by the executive wing of government.

America is screwed to the extent that it influences US policies. If the Democrats were kept away from power, the US will boom. So what happened after a Republican controlled Congress and President Trump accomplished with the tax cuts and deregulation? A boom.
